In 2019 the competitions will take a new format, so as to enable as many students as possible to take part in them. Also, there will once again be a Diurna Competition: a short 400 word article on a general topic related to the Classical Word. Articles should not be about personal matters, such as why a student is studying Latin or attending the LSS. Such subject matter is inappropriate to Diurna and is outmoded.There will be a $300 prize for the winning entry
The 25th Latin Summer School was held in the Eastern Avenue Building and the New Law Building at the University of Sydney, from Monday January 14 to Friday January 18. It was a great success, with over 240 students attending from NSW, the ACT, Melbourne and Adelaide. The three copies of Diurna produced for the Summer School will be uploaded soon, as will the prize-winning stories, incorporating six Latin quotes, written by Lisa Creffield and 12-year-old Hugo Sharkey.
The 26th Latin Summer School will be held at the University of Sydney from January 13 to January 17 2020. Enrolments will begin in October 2019.
